  • “A stunning location with panoramic views of the sea and the black and red Cuillins - these views are right there as you sit at the dining room table.”

    If you are lucky you may see the local stag below you, or at least hear it's bellows. The property is spacious and well laid out and equipped. The wifi worked well. If has economy 7 heating, which is less easily controlled than gas central heating, but the property is very thermally efficient so additional heat can be very effectively provided using the the fan heaters. You could probably park 3 cars on the level on the property and it is down the end of a private drive so you will not be ...

    If you are lucky you may see the local stag below you, or at least hear it's bellows. The property is spacious and well laid out and equipped. The wifi worked well. If has economy 7 heating, which is less easily controlled than gas central heating, but the property is very thermally efficient so additional heat can be very effectively provided using the the fan heaters. You could probably park 3 cars on the level on the property and it is down the end of a private drive so you will not be disturbed by passing traffic (other than sheep and deer) - it is incredibly quiet. Note that there are several miles of twisty and very steep (1:5) narrow single-track road leading to the hamlet (although with a good road surface and plenty of passing places, but often with sheep and cattle standing in the middle of the road) and a couple of hundred yards of private track to the property itself made up of gravel and paving slabs. If you are a nervous driver or have a sports car with very low ground clearance then this might not be the property for you, but then many properties on Skye will be similar in this regard. Turning right or left out of the property leads down to a couple of picturesque bays, the left one has the ruins of a castle you can walk out to. Again, it is 1:5 hills to get down to both so you might want to drive the short distance rather than walk unless you are pretty fit. We cycled it, but I cannot advise doing that!

The property

Broadford 15 miles.

Occupying a stunning location with magnificent views, this spacious wooden cottage is set in the pretty hamlet of Tokavaig on the west side of the Sleat Peninsula on the Isle of Skye.

Approached by a private road, this detached cottage has lovely features such as the high wooden vaulted ceilings and cathedral windows to allow for full appreciation of this fabulous location.

This Skye cottage is ideally suited to a family or group of friends who really want to savour the tranquillity and peace of the island and spend time surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

This single-storey cottage has three bedrooms - two double rooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and a twin room, as well as a main bathroom.

The delightful sitting area boasts large arched windows looking out to the sea, high ceilings, a decorative woodburner and comfy furnishings.

The kitchen and dining area offer French doors, which open out onto a balcony and again take full advantage of the views, making it an excellent place to sit and enjoy breakfast.

The village of Armadale is some 10 miles to the south of this Sleat cottage and has a hotel, lively pub and a village shop, plus 15 miles away is Broadford - Skye's second largest village.

The area of Sleat is known as the Garden of Skye due to its abundance of flora and fauna making it very popular during the summer.

There is so much to see and do on the Isle of Skye.

The island has great restaurants, excellent local crafts, quiet beaches and mountains, but whatever you do decide to do, you will love to return to the tranquillity and comfort of this welcoming cottage.

About the location

BROADFORD

Portree 29 miles.

Skye's second largest village, Broadford lies in the shadow of the Red Cuillins and spreads itself along the southern side of Broadford Bay. Views extend out to the Isle of Pabay and more distantly to the Applecross mountains on the mainland. The village caters well for the tourists with shops, hotels and colourful craft stalls. Close by is the little village of Elgol, which enjoys 'the finest view in Britain' - the end of the Cuillin Ridge seen across Loch Scavaig. From Elgol pier take an unforgettable boat trip to Loch Coruisk in the heart of Cullin Mountain Range. The nearby Sleat Peninsula known as the 'Garden of Skye' has many attractions and a ferry link to the mainland - Armadale to Mallaig.
